chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. >>> today, the obama administration released its new and improved rules for contraception under the new affordable care act. yaah, new rules, the gist is this, everybody with health care insurance does get access to contraception. the catch is religious employers wouldn't have to contract, arrange or pay to anything in which they object to on religious grounds. so this is an attempt to have it a bit both ways on this issue. >> the president has been very clear on these issues. clear about what he believes are two compelling interests, which are the necessity of and the appropriateness of providing preventive services to women across the country, including contraception. and making sure that we are mindful of religious liberty. and he has instructed those who work for him on this issue to be cognizant on this issue. >> the way it works, is weird. religious employers and faith-based nonprofits like universities and hospitals and charities don't have to provide the contraception coverage for their employees, but the employees could get it with the outside ag
, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first lady of the united states for her husband's two terms in office.

process. tonight, greenwald, lawrence korb, and joan walsh on the obama administration's constitutional drone crisis. >>> and just when you thought republicans were done planning to steal elections, you will not believe the stunt they are about to pull in pennsylvania. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. another day, another relaunch of the republican party. but this time i think the republican house leaders showed exactly who the republicans really have are. >> house majority leader eric cantor will be outlining a new agenda for his party, focusing on issues like education and health care and spend less time talking about the deficit. >> really? oh, yes. eric cantor to the rescue. he is ready to save the republican image and put a stop to the electoral college losses, right? of course, this is not the first time eric cantor has tried to save the party. you see, it actually is the fourth attempt that he has had. in 2009, cantor held a pizza party, remember that? with jeb bush and mitt romney by launching the national council for a new america that didn't work.
way to adjudicate the possibilities of what war means to the obama administration? >> well, i think that, i think that is absolutely right, it has been a continuation of the bush administration policies, and yes, administrations always try to push the outer bounds of the authority. but one thank is clear is that the laws of war have not changed even if the practice has changed. there are really three reasons that a country can, a state can use force outside of its borders. one, if it is the victim of an armed attack and second if the u.n. security council authorizes it, and three, assisting a state that requests it, and we have stretched that boundary as well far beyond what the laws of war call for. so i think that there is a very serious question about this question of perpetual war, but we should remember historically in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were bef
significant. you know, four years ago, as the obama administration was just getting started in its first term, lapierre was on with glen beck riling people up, talking to beck's paranoid audience about this gun grab that was coming. and all of this -- beyond alarmist, insane rhetoric and devicive rhetoric. >> how much is -- do you think people were just psychological? is this a male thing worried about somebody coming to get their appliance? i mean, what is this about? it seems deeper than just how many guns do you own? do they actually believe that the federal government is going to come door-to-door to law-abiding, regular class, people, looking for guns? do they actually believe that's going to happen? >> some of them do, i think. and i think they particularly believe it when there's a democrat in the white house. wayne lapierre is the person who talked about federal agents after oklahoma city. so this is a man who's been allowed to have a platform on the national stage, even though he is a wing nut. and, finally, you have someone reich chris wallace who is certainly a more moderate voice
finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaion keeps it closer to the goal.
administration more generally -- obama administration more generally. for the past four years the executive branch has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the danger posed by those who practice holy war or jihad against our country. the administration has also sought to silence and in some cases punish those who have spoken the trute about this menace. -- the truth about this menace. mr. speaker, i welcome the secretary's warning, belater though it may be. however, it would have served this country and the cause of freedom far more if she would have so openly and to have led encountering it at any point during her tenure other than its conclusion. one of the most important architects of that see no jihad policy over the past four years has been john brennan, president obama's homeland security advisor and his pick to become the next director of the central intelligence agency. in may, 2010, mr. brennan publicly declared that we do not describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenant of islam, meaning to purify one's self or one's commun

the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma

. >> al, thank you. this morning lawmakers are getting nuances about why the obama administration believes it is okay to use drones to kill expected terrorists including americans. it's an issue that will be key at today's confirmation hearing for the president's pick for cia. michael isikoff is calling this story for us. michael, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. drone strikes, the obama administration's weapon of choice against terrorists are coming under scrutiny. after a disclosure justice department document obtained by nbc news this week that justifies the targeted killing of americans suspected of being top al qaeda leaders. for the first time today the white house is sharing the classified memo that lays out the legal basis for such strikes with members of the house and senate intelligence committees. the move comes at a crucial time as john brenan, president obama's nominee to be cia director, faces his confirmation hearing today on capitol hill. in the war over drone strikes, a major reversal from the white house. after years of ironclad secrecy, president obama directed t
policies. criticism that sounds very familiar. during his 2008 campaign then senator obama described president bush's policies as indiscriminate and too secretive. many say the same is now true of the obama administration. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live from the state department. james, normally when we talk about critics, talking about the on opposite side of the aisle. when we look at the criticism president it includes members of his own base. tell us a little more about that. >> reporter: so much of this criticism, jenna, now suddenly arising from the left of the president and his policies in the war on terror has to do with timing. specifically the start of the president's second term and his nomination of counterterrorism advisor john brennan to be director of cia. as a career intelligence officer brennan has spearhead ad number of policies. the dramatic expansion of the drone program, for example and the development of novel legal theories to justify the use of drones to assassinate u.s. citizens said to be enengaged in terrorism abroad all of which liberal
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
's certainly a frustration and i think it's a problem that the obama administration had faith and credibility. the caller did talk about "the wall street journal" in its coverage of the crisis. i think every journalist has to look back on how we performed going into this financial crisis and after the financial crisis in certainly there's lots of areas where we should have had more skepticism and work harder to impose more scrutiny on the institutions we been talking about today. i've actually gone back and looked at the journal. i think we did a fairly good job. i wrote a story in 2005 saying there is a global housing boom, which could have been a global recession. we did try to write about a lot of these complicated financial instrument leading up to the financial crisis. so i want to say i think we did a pretty good job, but at the same time, we missed funny and could have and should have done more to shine more light on what was happening. >> host: it's not the world of economy, but is there some thing to be seen about what is currently going on with republicans, democrats on the topic of
care at the time when state budgets are shrinking every place. >> it came out when the obama administration proposed change to the wage and hour and overtime regulation -- [inaudible] very concerned. >> absolutely. and it played out in california in exactly the same way. >> okay. i lay out a plan for expanding the state. organizing around this. barbara you're involved in that. tell us in your experience. what works and what hasn't worked in trying to organize grassroots movements in this area. >> the national dmoask workers alliance is growing. we started in 2011 as an organization and today we are -- [inaudible] organizations in 23 cities. and we are amplifying the efforts of domestic workers mostly immigrant population that is doing the work now. and our efforts around the country and around these workers. to influence their life and what we have -- [inaudible] we have a training program now for the domestic workers and the solidarity organized in leadership program, and to mobilize and to build leadership among domestic workers. i didn't talk about the new york domestic wo
